Governor Jerry Brown’s May-budget revision proposal to “reform” California’s Enterprise Zone program has sailed through legislative committees in both CA chambers. Although dubbed a reform, the legislation would effectively dismantle the enterprise zone hiring credit program (see previous posts here and here).
To my knowledge, the current vote counts are not being publically announced at this point; however, I have reason to believe the issue is very close – within just a few votes of the 2/3 majority required to pass such a tax increase on businesses.
Efforts continue to inform lawmakers, some of whom have been confused by the Governor’s use of “reform” language in pursuing his proposal. Citizen-fueled lobbying efforts have been organized at the Capital, including one for Tuesday of next week. We anticipate a vote on the proposal as soon as Wednesday
